Fillings are done to remove decay, and replace the afflicted tooth structure. It is called a filling due to the fact that new material fills the hole that the decay left. Now days most teeth are treated with bonded tooth colored composite resin fillings. Caught early enough, cavities can be treated easily and painlessly. If not treated, decay can lead to tooth pain and/or infection, and the tooth would need a root canal treatment or extraction.
There are 2 kinds of fillings; amalgam or silver fillings, and composite or white fillings. Composite fillings are tooth-colored to blend in with the remaining natural part of the tooth. Most dentists offer both types of fillings, but find that many of their patients choose the composite fillings.
The term composite refers to the actual filling material which is a mix of glass or quartz filler in a resin medium.
Composite fillings supply excellent sturdiness and resistance to fracture in small-to-mid size restorations that have to stand up to moderate chewing pressure. Less tooth structure is removed when the dental practitioner prepares the tooth, and this might result in a smaller sized filling than with of an amalgam.
In addition, composites are "bonded", or adhesively connected, to the tooth, often enabling a more conservative repair for the tooth. Composite fillings require that the tooth be kept clean and dry throughout the entire filling process and they undergo stain and staining in time. The life expectancy of a white filling can depend significantly on where it is in your mouth and how heavily your teeth come together when you bite.
Composite filling material is also typically utilized to repair front teeth that have cracked or worn. Where possible, esthetic bonding of composite material to front teeth is usually much more economical than veneers or crowns. However, bonding generally does not last as long as veneers or crowns.
